Jamun Mojito: There is nothing better than a refreshing glass of a chilled Mojito on a hot summer’s day. Oh wait, there actually is. If you ask us fruit flavoured mojitos take the cake and walk a fine line of balance between fruit flavour and the refreshing factor of mojitos.
This guide will teach you how to make a Jamun Mojito using a homemade Jamun syrup. We’ll also give you a link on how to make Jamuntini Mocktail, which is essentially, a non-alcoholic version of this drink.
Jamun Mojito: What is Jamun?
Jamun is a tropical summer fruit with a sweet and acidic characteristic with a unique astringent aftertaste. Also, known as the Java Plum, it is one of the rare fruit trees that are indigenous to India. You can find large shady Jamun trees at roadsides all across the country. These juicy and fleshy berries are part of mother nature’s summer abundance and it’s only fitting that we make a cocktail out of it.
